I found the cure for PMS

Men of the world - you're welcome.

I saw this recipe from Food Farm Health last week on a blog hop.  I was intrigued.  For one thing, I have absolutely no idea what a Saskatoon is, but the words berry and fudge sold me.  This recipe was super easy, and has Jack and Troy's stamp of approval.  Jack ate an entire plate of lunch in approximately 3 seconds because I promised him a piece of this if he cleaned his plate.


Saskatoon (whatever the hell that is) Berry Fudge
1/2 cup of coconut oil (I buy mine in bulk from Tropical Traditions)
1/2 cup of raw honey
3/4 cup of cocoa powder
1 tsp homemade vanilla extract
1 cup crazy made-up berries.  I used raspberries

In a small saucepan on low heat, gently cook the berries with a splash of water until they are soft and tender.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.

In a food processor, blend coconut oil and honey until creamed together.  It took me about 1 minute to achieve a super creamy consistency.  Add vanilla, cocoa, and berries, processing until smooth.  I needed to scrape the food processor a few times to make sure everything was incorporated.

Pour the fudge onto plastic wrap place on top of a cookie sheet (it would work better in a loaf pan).  Gently wrap it up so that it forms a loose rectangle approximately 1/2 - 3/4" thick.  Place it in the freezer for four hours or longer.

Store in the fridge.

I think I'll try this with a little bit of peanut butter instead of berries next time!

  3. Hahahah, I loved this post especially because I'm from Canada, and can't believe there is someone who hasn't heard of a saskatoon berry! But Saskatoon is a city in Saskatchewan, Canada. & the berries are from there but you can get them in other provinces in Canada too!! :) I'm a 19 year old teen mom, I've been absolutely ADDICTED to your blog. It's been 3 days since I came across a link to your blog on Pinterest and I'm so glad I did! I've been reading right from the start, and it's so amazing! Keep up the good work!!

      Saskatoon berries are delicious! They are similar to blueberries, but they grow up high on a bush rather than close to the ground. They are bluish-purple, and they contain edible seeds, so the texture is chewier in a sense than a blueberry but in my opinion they taste the same. I'm from Canada too. Saskatoon bushes grow wild all over the place. We use them to make pies, jams, jellies, syrups, fresh in salads, etc.

  4. I happened upon these berries at a campground somewhere in British Columbia. The owner of the grounds told me about the berries and had me try one. It really didn't do much for me. I can't quite recall the flavor, but I do recall I didn't see what all the fuss was about. I'd use raspberries. :o)

  5. I think that Saskatoon berries are better than blueberries. They are wonderful in jams and pie.

  6. We are in Colorado and we call them serviceberries. They grow up in the mountains, we get them when we go berry picking for them and raspberries and thimble berries.... This recipe seems like a super easy healthy fudge! I am trying it tomorrow with my fresh picked saskatoon berries!
